Collider wrote:Warner Bros. Developing I AM LEGEND Reboot from Spec Script Described as “Sci-Fi Version of THE SEARCHERS”

Warner Bros. has long been keen to make another I Am Legend movie, but it proved a tough nut to crack and Will Smith is reluctant to return to the franchise. The studio may have found a way around all that. Deadline reports that WB will retrofit the spec script A Garden at the End of the World, written by Gary Graham, into an I Am Legend reboot. Graham worked at the Apple store when he submitted his script, described as a “sci-fi version of The Searchers,” to the Black List website. Warner Bros. took notice and saw enough similarities that they recruited Graham to rewrite A Garden at the End of the World to fit the I Am Legend universe.

It is not specified how Graham’s new script will link to I Am Legend or when in relation to the apocalypse the new film is set, but there are no plans to bring Smith back. Original I Am Legend producers Akiva Goldsman, James Lassiter, and Joby Harold will return to produce the I Am Legend reboot alongside Roy Lee (Oldboy) and Brooklyn Weaver (Out of the Furnace).

Worst Previews wrote:Jean-Claude Van Damme Joins Reboot of His "Kickboxer" Film

It was recently reported that the upcoming "Kickboxer" reboot will star Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy, Alain Moussi (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Georges St Pierre and Tony Jaa.

Now comes word that Jaa has been forced to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. And the actor hired to replace him is Jean-Claude Van Damme, the star of the original film.

"Kickboxer" follows Kurt Sloan (Moussi), a talented martial artist who travels to Thailand where he must learn the secrets of the kickboxer to avenge his brother's death at the hands of Tong Po (Bautista). Van Damme will play a new version of Master Chow, who teaches Sloan the art of the kick. (Dennis Chan played the part in the 1989 original.)

The new film will begin shooting this week in New Orleans before moving to Thailand. John Stockwell (Into the Blue, Turistas) is directing.

More of a distant sequel than a reboot...

The Matrix is getting a reboot... already!

not sure if it's a complete cashgrab... I mean, reboot or if it'll have a connection to the original trilogy or even if Keanu will cameo but there is no point in rebooting it, everyone knows what the Matrix is! no point in starting from scratch, be a part reboot part sequel with a new lead.

they are looking to get Michael B Jordan for the lead, so that would rather someone young then?!

look at John Wick, Keanu can still kick ass! there was a bunch of names thrown out there when the original 99 classic was being cast before Keanu was cast as the lead, Will Smith was one of them. get him! you were gonna go with him anyway.

putting this in the Remake/Reboot thread for now, who knows if this will ever be made yet.

I can't believe they've done a remake/reboot of The Mummy. What's to improve on, and so soon? Tom Cruise? I don't think so ... :roll:

I don't know what to think about this. If it is a direct remake of the first movie I probably won't see it but if it is something different I might give it a chance.
